One of the training units within the organization is the fabric and banner waste to products. Here we train women to become tailors who can convert banner waste into backpacks, laptop bags, shopping bags, and purses. They also learn to make children’s clothes, ear bounds, bags, purses, patterned shorts, and shirts. This way we are contributing to the reduction of fabric and banner waste that would have made its way to landfills.
Also, through this, we are making the materials available and affordable to people within the communities that we serve. During the Covid-19 Crisis, the unit started producing nose masks that we distribute for free to members of the communities. Through this unit, we have so far produced 3000 nose masks.
